One of the beauty buys I was most excited about on my recent trip to Tokyo (yes, againnn) is this: the Ladurée Rose Petal Blush. When I first saw it online I was like I MUST HAVE DIS and I did. I’ve never been a big fan of the Ladurée cafe; the first time I went was Paris circa 2009 and I was really disappointed so I’ve kinda been hating on the brand ever since.

Laduree Rose Petal Blush Les Merveilleuses Product Pots

But this! This!!! Blush in the form of rose petals!!!! Semi-frosted pot to house it all in!!!! Ladurée, you’re forgiven for the one hour queue and heartbreak seven years ago lol. Obviously, like the rest of the Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée line, it was priced to steal your heart and break your budget.

I got both the pots for the Ladurée rose petal blush and face powder (¥3,000 each), but only the blush petals refill (¥7,000) itself. Yes, they’re sold separately and at inane prices. In other circumstances I would never throw all that yen on cosmetics made by a cafe brand known for their macarons (which doesn’t even compare to Pierre Hermé pffft)… but ROSE. PETAL. BLUSH. SOLD.

This is the pot for the face powder. I didn’t get the powder itself because it was one of those shimmery loose powders favoured by Japanese women, who have perfect, dewy-not-oily skin. I actually prefer this solid white pot to the frosted blush one, so now I have to figure out what to put in it. Perhaps my Dior loose powder.

The Laduree rose petal blush refill comes lovingly swaddled in this delicate lingerie silk drawstring bag.

At this point I don’t even mind being ripped off anymore.

These are so delicate, this was the best I could do at emulating a blooming rose. Turns out the Ladurée rose petal blush is actually quite pigmented. More than I expected, really.

Not a fan of this Antoinette-y style the Japanese seem to adore. Freaks me out, so I usually have the pot turned the other way around though I do like how even the tiny details are made quite well.

Such love. I feel like a princess every morning. “LET THEM EAT CAKE!!!!”

Laduree Rose Petal Blush Les Merveilleuses Swatch Colour

Is there such a thing as a glam swatch? I’m always holding the camera with one hand, and my swatches always look like crap. The warm, slightly coral shade is perfect for my skin tone, though I’ve yet to see how it will hold up in the Singapore heatwave. It is heavily fragranced, with that baby powder/rose scent that cosmetics makers seem to associate with femininity.

I am a happy sucker. Tokyo haul coming soon…
